Since November 2018 I am lecturer (~Assistant Professor) in the School of Computer Science and Informatics at Cardiff University. From November 2016 - October 2018, I was an EU's H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow within the Sêr Cymru II programme.

Before joining Cardiff University, I worked for two years as postdoctoral researcher at the Universität Bremen in the Theory of Artificial Intelligence Group led by Carsten Lutz. From September 2013 to January 2014, I worked at the University of Liverpool as research assistant with Frank Wolter and Boris Konev.

In November 2013, I got my PhD at the Universität Bremen under the supervision of Carsten Lutz. Before, in 2009, I obtained a Master degree in Computational Logic at the Technische Universität Dresden. Long time ago, I was born in Mexico City, Mexico. I studied Computer Science at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México where I obtained a B.Sc.


My main research interests include artificial intelligence, knowledge representation and reasoning, database theory, and more broadly, logic in computer science.
In particular, I work on
  • Temporal and Probabilistic Description Logics
  • Reasoning in Ontology-Enriched Systems
  • Integration of Reasoning and Learning
  • Plausible Reasoning with Ontologies



  • Best Paper Runner-Up at the 16th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR 2018), together with Steven Schockaert.
  • Best Student Paper Award at the 7th International Conference on Web Reasoning and Rule Systems (RR 2013), together with Yazmín Ibáñez-García, Roman Kontchakov and Egor Kostylev.
  • Best Student Paper Award at the 20th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI 2012), together with Jean Christoph Jung and Carsten Lutz
  • Best Student Paper Award at the 24th International Workshop on Description Logics (DL 2011), together with Szymon Klarman
